Should style come before practicality when it comes to headgear? Of course! But let’s be honest; sometimes that can be tough. Why not find a solution for both this winter? We break it down and provide the most fashionable hats to wear with your hairstyle. Trust us -- you’ll be excited for snowfall with these picks.

Mid-length or long curly hair: Knit Hat

If your hair is curly and long enough, a full knit hat that covers the entirety of you head is best because your luscious locks will still hang down. This Forever 21 Cable Knit Beanie with PomPom ($10) will give off that cool, hipster vibe in a neutral color that will go with any coat you rock this season. (Tip: Leave it on inside for that extreme downtown vibe.)

Long or short straight hair: Headband

To spruce up your straight hair (either long or short), add a headband for that ultimate '70s power look. Champion's Women's Ear Band ($13) will spruce up any cold day and sits right at the top of the forehead with bone straight hair for that bohemian look. (Tip: Part your hair down the middle and lift hair slightly at the crown to really stand out).

Bob: Trapper hat

While trapper hats can seem a bit masculine, take note from your boyfriend and show you can wear one just as well. This UGG Bailey Aviator ($190) works best if you have a bob or short hair so the focus is completely on the hat. It's a total statement piece. (Tip: We suggest pairing with a fitted jacket and a great riding boot for the ultimate feminine meets masculine look). No matter your hairstyle, step out in any of these luxuriously cozy hats to be a stylish winter dream this season.
